2 Days+ 4 Day 'Weekend'+ Exams = Summer
For seven weeks now we have gone without a progress report. That is, I haven't kept up-to-date numbers on numerical performance, a figurative bridge being built without a pillar on the other side. From daily testing in Latin to a Geometry test in advanced precalc on the grading block, it's a mystery. But things can be pulled together in the end, like I successfully did last year. Thanks much for the 3-day weekend plus house day. So if it goes well, I'll be able to have a pretty nice feeling vacation, if things come out as the apocalypse, it'll be a 12-week dread. Colleges are looking at this sheet of paper. More A's :), Less B's :&, One C in Physics :( (Honors, unweighted). And kudos to the 10th grade year of horror - 'too much work' as it is put, to a year of forced free periods and class choice privileges. So two more days, two papers, a quiz or two,a Humanities final, a weekend of hard-core review, four days of exam, and Little Brother arrives within 4 hours of when I get home.
